Votes for your favourite Fish and Chips now OPEN

The Fisheries Research and Development Corporation in partnership with the state and territory fishing industry councils are again looking for Australia’s best fish and chips.

In 2018 the FRDC will coordinate nationally the judging of the state and territory and National Australian Fish & Chips Awards. The FRDC will use an on-line system for judging the fish and chip category for both the state, territory (jurisdictions) and national seafood industry awards.

The Hon. Senator Anne Ruston is the official patron of the Australian Fish and Chips awards.

There are two categories: People’s choice and a judge’s choice. The winners from the state and territories will go through to compete for the National title of Best Fish and Chips 2018.

Voting Criteria

Fish and chips will be rated against a set of five criteria, whether by public or under-cover judge, to ensure the best is found. In each state and territory, once the top shops have been determined by People’s choice, under-cover judges will then determine the winner of each state and who has Australia's Best Fish and Chips in 2018.

  • Taste [40%] – the seafood tastes good.

  • Service [30%] – the service meets customer expectations.

  • Choice [10%] – Seafood menu offers a range of seafood, including Australian seafood.

  • Information [10%] – Customers are provided accurate information about the seafood & does the menu complies with the Australian Standard for Fish Names and, highlights the seafood’s provenance (i.e. is labelled accurately).

  • Presentation [10%] – Is the store clean and inviting? Is the food packaged well to maintain quality?
